Reports Say the Lions Working on a Huge Deal with QB Matthew Stafford

The Lions are talking about a deal for one of their star players – a VERY big deal.

Reports from NFL.com state that the Lions are looking at making their star QB, Matthew Stafford, the highest paid quarterback in the game, as the team and player try to hammer out a new deal.

Here’s some of the NFL.com article:

Lions president Rod Wood recently suggested he’s comfortable making Matthew Stafford the highest-paid player in the NFL if that’s what it takes to find common ground on a new contract.

Set to enter the final season of a three-year, $53 million extension, Stafford might just have a new deal by the time Detroit’s training camp opens July 31.

Appearing on Tuesday’s edition of NFL Total Access, NFL Network’s Stacey Dales reported there is “internal optimism” at team headquarters that a new agreement will be reached in the next two weeks.

Reports say that Stafford is looking to make the type of money that the Raiders gave Derek Carr, their star QB who was recently given a five-year deal worth $125 million.
